Essential Cookies - Cashback
These cookies are set only when you click to redeem a cashback offer. You will be notified before they are stored on your device. Cashback tracking requires these cookies to function correctly.
To track Cashback purchases with retailers we use affiliate networks. These affiliate networks do not receive any information about you from us, however, we do share a unique per-visit ID with them to enable your Cashback to be correctly credited to you. This is held in a “tracking cookie” whilst you complete your purchase with the chosen retailer.
You can learn more about how this information is held in their Privacy Notices:
The retailers that you visit may also place their own cookies on your device when you transact with them. Those cookies will be governed by their own policies and we are not responsible for any acts and omissions (including in relation to their cookie and privacy policies) by them.

Do we track whether users open our emails?
Our emails often contain a single, email-unique "pixel" to tell us whether you have opened the emails, and we can identify which links have been followed. We use this information so that we can understand what content is interesting to our users. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device at all, please unsubscribe from our email communications.
